Oregon dog that lost pups in barn fire adopts 8 others

A dog named Daisy that stopped eating after losing her seven puppies in a barn fire is described as being in heaven after adopting eight other pups whose mother died giving birth.

The 2-year-old Daisy is a mix between a Great Pyrenees and border collie. Her seven puppies perished in a barn fire in Roseburg earlier this month.

Recently, a border collie died in surgery trying to give birth to two more pups after delivering eight.

Daisy's owner, Christine Nelson, learned about the orphaned puppies and they met Daisy on Friday.

Nelson tells KVAL-TV (http://bit.ly/2lYI4ZK) that "Daisy is in heaven."
